The term Liberalism properly describes who we are (America is a free-market liberal democracy) but that word got hijacked a hundred years ago and now even the Right uses the word 'liberal' to describe socialists ceding the word that properly describes THEM. Hell, we can't even define ourselves properly. Read Hayek's, "The Road to Serfdom". He explains it well. The Right needs to start over, use terms and definitions properly and build from there. Unless you understand what Liberalism really is, you won't be able to identify socialism, fascism or any other planned economy that is a threat to Liberalism.
